Can I Have Laser Hair Removal On My Face?

Laser hair removal is very popular for facial areas such as upper lip, chin, cheeks and neck. It is often the part of the body that people are most self-conscious about, but actually a very common area to be treated with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal can certainly be helpful in reducing, thinning and slowing hair growth – making it much more manageable. We would normally suggest stopping waxing, threading, plucking and bleaching 3 – 4 weeks before commencing laser treatment. However, shaving and trimming prior to and in-between laser treatments is fine. Make up should be removed prior to treatment.

We can treat most areas on the face, apart from inside the nose and ears and underneath eyebrows. The area between the eyebrows and above the eyebrows can be treated. Hair must be either brown or black to be effectively treated. If the hair is extremely fine and downy, it may not be suitable for laser treatment. If you are struggling with excess facial hair, laser hair removal is a great option to consider.
